Arsenal to reject all transfer offers for star striker after strong Euro performance

Posted by

Olivier Giroud has been rather sharp in Euro 2016, scoring three goals and making two assists for France and helping them reach the upcoming Final against Portugal. His play has been so strong that Arsenal are now determined to keep him at Emirates Stadium for as long as possible, and are ignoring any and all transfer requests for the French striker that come their way.

According to the Mirror, Arsenal have already rejected an unspecified number of transfer inquiries for the 29-year-old striker. Giroud finished the 2015-16 season with 16 goals in all 38 matches for Arsenal, and 24 goals in a career-high 54 total appearances for the club.

He was subject to fairly notable goalless streak in the middle of the season though. From mid-January through the end of April he failed to score a single goal in the Premier League.

In four years since joining Arsenal on a transfer from Montpellier, Giroud has netted 82 times in 188 appearances across all competitions.

Since May, however, Giroud has contributed 10 goals and three assists to club and country.
